The drive will be the same as the old Varney diesels- a horizontal motor (in this case a largeish can) driving the wormshaft via a belt on the truck that it is mounted upon. Second truck has similar wormshaft driven from motorized truck by telescoping shaft and universal joints.

Milling axle slots

Axle and worm shafts will be mounted on .125"x.3215"x.110" ball bearings. Semi-finished truck gearboxes-

Wheels are turned, have to make axles and wormshafts.
